Kuhn GF 6502
See also: Kuhn GF 6502
The Kuhn GF 6502 is a Tedder available in Farming Simulator 15. It is the smallest and cheapest Tedder in the game. Its purpose is to turn mowed Grass into dried Grass while it's still on the ground after the Mowing process. Dried Grass can then be turned into Hay by a Baler.
The GF 6502 is the smallest and cheapest Tedder in the base game. It is a wide metal frame, holding rotating discs covered with metal forks, and supported by a series of wheels. The frame is hydraulic and can be folded and unfolded. When activated properly, the discs and forks rotate, tossing about any loose Grass they encounter. This aerates the Grass and allows it to dry faster. In game terms, this process is what allows Grass to dry at all.
The GF 6502 has a Three-point hitch, which can be attached to the rear of most tractors. It can also be attached to the front of some tractors, but will not work while attached that way.
When unfolded, lowered and activated, the GF 6502 will instantly turn any piece of Mowed Grass it touches into Dried Grass. It will not affect uncut Grass at all, nor any other kind of Crop. It only interacts with Mowed Grass. The GF 6502 does not change the volume of the Mowed Grass it teds - you'll get an equal amount of Dried Grass in its stead.
Note that this process does not create Hay, it creates Dried Grass, which will only turn into Hay if it is collected in bale form. Collecting the Dried Grass with a Loading Wagon turns it right back into regular Grass, as far as the game is concerned. That would waste all of the work you've done with the Tedder.
The GF 6502 has a working width of only 6.5 meters. This is sufficiently wide to ted roughly two trails of mowed grass left behind by a Mower at the same time. This narrow working width makes it significantly less effective than its larger counterpart, the Pottinger HIT 12.14 T. The GF 6502 enforces a maximum speed of 19 km/h while working.
The store reports that the GF 6502 requires 44 kW / 60 hp to operate. This value is rather meaningless, since no tractor in the game is too weak to supply this amount. Even the smallest tractor in the base game can operate the GF 6502 comfortably while it is activated. Of course, if the GF 6502 is mounted in tandem with a Mower (a tool combo that mows and teds at the same time), a small tractor may not be good enough for the job.
